attewell: no.

 

If you don't have LOS then wireless isn't an option at all and you've answered your own question.

 

If you have LOS the answer is still no. Enable don't provide wireless services.

 

If you did have LOS to somewhere that did have fibre and could arrange for a connection at a location you could install your own wireless equipment.

ADSL at my place is rubbish (5Mbps), so I installed VDSL at a friends house and then installed a P2P Wireless link between our 2 houses - however, I had LOS to their house (600 Meters away)





Hmmmm

^^^ This!

 

Your best bet is to find a friend who can get fibre/VDSL who is also LOS to your place and do as above.

 

I did this at our old farm. Had rubbish, < 5Mbps speeds, so got a VDSL connection at a neighbour who was right next to the cabinet. Setup a P2P wireless link (~ 1.2 km LOS) and then had rock solid 50/10 out in the country :-)
